After three seasons at Pigeon Forge, Adrian Watson has resigned as head football coach.
Watson posted a 7-23 overall record at Pigeon Forge which includes back to back 1-9 seasons and the Tigers will go into the 2020 season on a three game losing streak.
The best season Pigeon Forge had under Watson was his first season in 2017 as the Tigers finished 5-5 and didn’t make the playoffs under Watson.
“Coach Adrian Watson resigned as head football coach at Pigeon Forge High School today. On behalf of Pigeon Forge High School, I want to thank Coach Watson for his three years of service as our head football coach,” Pigeon Forge principal Ben Clabo said.
“I appreciate his hard work and dedication to our football program and our student-athletes. During his time as our coach, he has worked tirelessly to not only develop our students as players but as young men as well. He has been and continues to be a valued member of our school family.”
It was Watson’s second tenure at Pigeon Forge as he taught and coached at the school when it first opened its doors back in 1999.
The 1993 Gatlinburg Pittman graduate also coached at his alma mater and Northview Academy before coming back to Pigeon Forge.
Currently there are 12 schools looking for a head coach they are: Camden, Cheatham County, Clinton, Goodpasture, Lincoln County, Loretto, Milan, Overton, Pigeon Forge, Red Boiling Springs, Siegel and Station Camp
